Welcoming Our Kauai Firefighters

Recently, we had a visit from the Fire Inspector for the finalization of our Media Studio's certificate of occupancy. While here he was intrigued to find out that the Aadheenam was a lot bigger than just the front area commonly seen on an initial visit. Realizing its size and the amount of buildings we have, he requested a tour for his peers so that they could know the landscape in case there ever was an emergency. We happily complied. Today Yoginathaswami gave them a tour of our facilities and of Iraivan temple. The group probably wasn't sure what to expect, but they all ended up have a great time. Particularly enjoying the beauty and engineering of Iraivan.

Ladies Retreat – Day 2

Ladies Retreat & Diksha

A small ladies retreat began today, with participants from Malaysia, Singapore and Kauai. One of the participants from Malaysia, Parimala Selvaraj, received mantra diksha from Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami. This diksha means receiving spiritual initiation from the Satguru to chant Aum Namah Sivaya 108 times daily on a rudraksha japa mala. Prior to this, she was chanting Aum Saravanabhava Aum. It is the first of two dikshas that all sishyas in Saiva Siddhanta Church prepare to receive. She is now known as a dikshasishya.
